My VW Golf is more economical now?

The VW Golf 2.0 TSI GTI Performance 16v (245bhp) Hatchback 5dr 1984cc Petrol DSG (7 Speed) Petrol Automatic has new environmental information today. I have updated! Pay attention, you are too slow 🙂

Most extras fitted onto cars don’t seem to make difference to the resale price in 2-3 years. Metallic paint, leather and aircon actually do, but let’s face it most cars I sell come with aircon and met paint, anyway. So, if you ask for quote to include extras, you can bet life that it will mean you pay the whole cost of the extra thing, divided by the number of rentals.

When a customer clicks through into an individual car’s detail, they can see even more information. This includes the CO2 (again) and all three EC fuel consumption measurements. I even include the EU noise rating and the road tax “class” which may influence a customer’s car choice decision. (Please bear in mind that the road tax is completely free, from me – I include that cost information so a customer has more clue about the environmental impact of their new car).

Environment

I have taken a typical model of this car from my website – the VW Golf Petrol Automatic. For this car, the CO2 is now just 144g/km. Other trim levels might differ slightly.

My VW Golf 2.0 TSI GTI Performance 16v (245bhp) Hatchback 5dr 1984cc Petrol DSG (7 Speed) Petrol Automatic gearbox is only £329.16 inc VAT per month with 9 months initial payment, followed by 35 payments on direct debit. Business customers, make sure you deduct the VAT, when making decisions. As I can’t tell what type of customer you are (business or private), I can’t display the price any other way but to show VAT seperately (sorry!).

VWThis price on my VW Golf includes full road tax for the length of the contract, on all of my cars and vans! Free delivery to your home or work and free collection from you at the end! £329.16 inc VAT per month is based on you driving 10,000 miles per annum, but higher mileages are usually available at a small extra cost. If you go over the allocated miles, you can pay a small excess mileage charge, usually between 3p and 15p per mile.

The comparative or “fridge” label, is compulsory in car showrooms – except you’ve got to DRIVE there to see it! I won an industry award for displaying it electronically for all website visitors. I am the proud winner of the 2008 Best Environmentalist 2008 Automotive Management Award. Like me, Michael O’Leary, CEO of Ryanair talks straight about cars versus planes. “The usual horseshit”, he says. One day, every car will be as Green as my Jolly Green Nuclear Missile Truck “Calm down dear!” – it’s only done 1,000 miles since 1970.

Final word to Ryanair’s Michael O’Leary; “Worried about pollution? I’d say sell your car and walk.”

I get tired of typing out these comments, but… here’s one.

Thank you so much for having such a fun and original website. This is one of the best sites I have been on. I have very much enjoyed my visit. I wish more people were as witty as you.
